one thing. >> the cars in front of him to go faster. >> request denied, sir. see why the driver didn't take that so well. who doesn't love some wings and barbecued ribs. how to challenge some finger-licking good food without the -- >> no one wants to hear that. and want to spice up a trip to the airport? >> why not prank your wife along the way. >> there's a truck getting towed and it looks like it's coming at us. >> see how this led to this. >> oh! steven will get our show started with our first video and the story behind it. >> a bicyclist is issued a ticket in brooklyn, new york, and he's not too happy about it. here's why. he's driving along approaching an intersection. that's a cop car in the intersection. he's on a bike path. when he approaches the cop car, he's got to sort of go off the
curb because the cop is blocking the ramp down to the intersection. >> what's that? >> he kind of motions to the officer, says, hey, move back. gets down to the next block and watch this. officer pulls up and puts him off at the next intersection. tells him to get off his bike. ben does and has this conversation with the officer. >> i did stop at the red light. >> why didn't you stop at the one back there? >> which one. >> the one when you went around me. >> that was a green light. >> it was red. >> let's rewind. as he's approaching, if you pay attention, you notice the symbol is still blinking, thus meaning you can cross the street. you see traffic still going through the intersection. leading us to believe that the light was in fact green. ben was issued a ticket on this day. he has since sent his summons in as not guilty and he has filed a complaint. and ben is joining us right this minute. was the light in fact green?
>> it was. basically i have to follow the laws of the road like a vehicle. but regardless of that, don't walk was blinking was well. >> did you mention anything to him about blocking the crosswalk? >> yeah, they're not supposed to, especially a bike path. you're not supposed to block it. you could be issued a summons for that, i believe. >> ben, do you think he gave you this ticket because you motioned to him and said back up as you went through the intersection? >> definitely. i dared to disrespect him, otherwise he wouldn't have stopped me. >> you uploaded this video. what do you hope happens? >> i hope to bring that to court and that i don't have to pay the ticket. >> ben, we've got a call into the nypd to get a statement from them. we have yet to hear back from them, so keep us posted on what happens in the future. >> definitely. fair warning, this next one is a little graphic. this lady is not going to win any mother of the year awards.
mom comes out, runs across the street. but watch who follows along and doesn't look both ways. >> oh, no! >> oh! >> oh, dear jesus. oh, my gosh. >> the little baby girl comes out, chases after a family member of some sort. the little girl did suffer a broken leg. >> oh, boy. >> that's awful to watch, it really is. we don't know the story here. the mom could have walked out and not known that the daughter followed her. >> it's a tough situation. you know, you've got to keep your eyes on the kids at all times. who knows, mom could have been running across the street for an emergency of some sort. whatever, the little girl did not look both ways. she came running right into the middle of the street. the driver obviously had no chance to stop in time, but she was okay other than the broken leg. >> how traumatic for the mom. >> and the little girl. watching her drag herself away from the car. my heart is broken for this little girl. >> you know what, she's lucky she only suffered a broken leg because her head could have bounced off the ground.
>> i feel for the driver. there's absolutely no warning, knowing that this little girl runs into your car. it's not your fault, but it's still a child. some flooding happened earlier this month on the campus of james madison university. this is in harrisonburg, virginia. >> whoa, check that out. >> is that a dorm? >> this is the festival conference and student center. it's like a river inside the building, and there are people still in there. >> i'm surprised these people are allowed to be in there at this point. >> this is called duke dog alley. >> this is duke dog alley. >> it's not taking students anywhere this day unless they have a kayak. >> unless a white water raft. >> what about the cheap mattresses from the dorm? >> you should not do that, students. >> the tree right there. here is another video. this is actually the football stadium at jmu. it is called bridge forth.
>> they should rename it the punch bowl. the grounds crew is watching this video like oh, boy. good thing football doesn't start for a while. >> that's pretty interesting that you say that because these floodwaters receded within a matter of hours and they were able to hold a football camp. it's pretty remarkable. this happened because of a pretty severe rainstorm. some reports say they were getting up to 4 inches of rain per hour, which of course created the flash flooding. >> an adventure at jmu. > we've all somemeweve all been this guy. but maybe not this aggressive. somebody shot this video of a guy leaving a north carolina beach and he just wants the cars in front of him to go faster. and they're not cooperating. >> not much you can do, buddy. >> what you're going to see in this video is him constantly trying to pass everybody and just raging. >> maybe he really had to pee or
something. >> it's summertime on the coast of north carolina. there's going to be traffic no matter where you go. if this guy wants to go hang out at the beach, he's got to be aware that a lot of other people want to hang out at the beach too. >> if this guy was behind me, i'd go even slower. i'd go like 15 mile an hour slower. >> what amazes me about this video, he doesn't care what kind of line he's moving over just to peek. i don't know what he thinks is going to happen but finally at the very end it's a two-lane highway where he can feed off. i just hope and pray that he gets caught in a speed trap. >> we've all been in this situation where people in front of you are just driving slow. if these people are just putt-putting along that irritates you and, yeah, you want to get around them. >> it doesn't look like they're putt-putting along. it looks like they're all going at a nice clip but just not fast enough for the guy in the red convertible. >> in parts of this video, the speed limit is 35. he's not supposed to be going faster than 35. the highest speed limit sign i
saw was 55. >> we've all been upset about this in the past but you just don't act like this. see that bus? that is a real double-decker bus. >> doing pushups. >> oh, my gosh. >> see where it is and what it's all about next. it's the new way to take care of an old fly problem. >> this is called the bug assault. >> let me show you how it works. >> see the first time i saw fios, it was absolutely amazing.

all these visitors and the olympics and the strain it's causing on the city? >> well, according to the artist, pushups are universal to all athletes. also pushups are a form of punishment if you're in the army or serving time or something like that. >> pushups are a very universal kind of movement or improving the physical ability. so it's in a way very ironic, of course. >> this is a cool piece because it looks like the bus is full of liquid. >> and it's making pushup noises. >> this is outside of the czech olympic house in london. >> that would inspire me if i walk out and see that. i'd be like, yeah, i'm going to take on london. >> david is a controversial artist. he does like his art to get people talking. he had a piece called entropa that caused some controversy. >> that doesn't cause any controversy to me. >> i think it looks like a happy

blasts them shotgun-style with a pinch of salt. >> oh, really? >> yeah, table salt, every day household table salt. >> your aim has to be pretty spot-on to be able to hit it. >> not really. think about it. what a shotgun does, a shotgun spreads. so this is shooting the salt and it's spreading the range of the salt so your aim can just be kind of okay. >> did you see that fly? it's like it just gave up midair and its legs were turned up. >> this is an indy go-go project. if you like this idea you can be one of the first to get a bug assault. 30 bucks and you can have a bug assault. some of those funds will help bring this to the masses. that good ole prankster jack vail is back. >> i'm looking for a guy in a white tank top. he should be riding his bike around in the parking lot here.
